Polk Street Press Privacy Policy

Data Collection

We use technologies like cookies (small files stored on your browser) or unique device identifiers to identify your computer or device so we can deliver a better experience. Our systems also log information like your browser, operating system and IP address.

We also may collect personally identifiable information that you provide to us, such as your name or email address. Our systems may associate this personal information with your activities in the course of providing service to you (such as pages you view or things you click on or search for).

We do not knowingly contact or collect personal information from children under 13 without explicit parental consent. If you sign up for a Polk Street Parents account you are giving your consent for us to collect information about how your child(ren) are using Polk Street Press apps so that we can report to you their learning and progress and so we can improve our products. Personally identifiable information that they could provide via our apps include name, age, gender, or an image for their profile.


We do not use or collect your precise geographic location.


You can sign into your account to see any personally identifiable information we have stored, such as your name, email or child’s name. You can also contact us by email to request to see or delete this information.


Upon receipt of an email request, we will remove personally identifiable information (such as your name or email) and other preferences associated with your account. We may retain other data indefinitely.


We do not allow external advertising companies to collect data through our service for ad targeting.


In order to serve you, we may share your personal and anonymous information with other companies, including vendors and contractors. Their use of information is limited to supporting our internal operations, and subject to agreements that require them to keep the information confidential. Our vendors provide assurance that they take reasonable steps to safeguard the data they hold on our behalf, although data security cannot be guaranteed.

Analytics companies may access anonymous data (such as your IP address or device ID) to help us understand how our services are used. They use this data solely on our behalf. They do not share it except in aggregate form; no data is shared as to any individual user. Click to see company privacy policies that govern their use of data.

We take reasonable steps to secure your personally identifiable information against unauthorized access or disclosure.

However, no security or encryption method can be guaranteed to protect information from hackers or human error.

Information we collect may be stored or processed on computers located in any country where we do business.

Data Sharing

To operate the service, we also may make identifiable and anonymous information available to third parties in these limited circumstances: (1) with your express consent, (2) when we have a good faith belief it is required by law, (3) when we have a good faith belief it is necessary to protect our rights or property, or (4) to any successor or purchaser in a merger, acquisition, liquidation, dissolution or sale of assets. Your consent will not be required for disclosure in these cases, but we will attempt to notify you, to the extent permitted by law to do so.
